Meeting with fellow military people is a plus. Nice bar and reasonable prices. They also have special venues on specific days/evenings. I'm retired air force so it really appeals to me.

We went to see the travelling Vietnam Wall that came through our area. Very somber, but this place put the focus on history & sacrifice.

This memorial consisted of the top/sail of a real submarine and 2 helicopters. We loved that they painted the concrete base below the submarine black to look like the submarine was ascending or descending. Thought it would be great if the rocks were blue! This...More
